The Tarikh-i-rashidi


Collection opensource
Tarikh-i-Rashidi ( History of Rashid ) is a personal memoir combined with a Central Asian history. Mirza Muhammad Haidar devoted this extensive work, written in Kashmir from 1541 to 1546 in two volumes, to contemporary ruler of Kashgaria Abdurashid Khan, son of Sultan Said Khan (descendant of first Moghul Khan Tughluk Timur Khan, grandson of Duwa Khan, great great grandson of Chagatai Khan, second son of Chengiz Khan), founder of Saidiya state in Kashgaria in 1514 with active and decisive support of author's uncle Sayyid Muhammad Mirza. It was translated into English in 1895 by Ney Elias and Edward Denison Ross. Among other events, the Tarikh-i-Rashidi describes the founding of the Kazakh Khanate in 1465 and Muhammad Haidar Dughlat's personal encounter with one of the early Kazakh rulers, namely Kasym Khan.

Subject: defaults
Thsi NOT a copy of any paper edition, but it has been copied page by page from the web edition prepared by Packard Humanities Institute (http://persian.packhum.org/persian/main).
This produces three main faults:
There are no page numbers
There is no index
There are no foot page notes.
I used to find the footnotes in the mentioned web, but unfortunately this text has been removed from there.
